    Oh wow i didn't even know you could take the scope off snipers and just use the iron sights, my head is still recovering from 'callofdutyitis'.

    I'd be able to level up Recon quicker if i could actually fucking hit people, my accuracy is shit.

    All this talk of sniper rifles reminds me, yesterday I did some counter-sniping on Firestorm with the AS VAL. Managed to drop (I mean literally drop, it was so far away) a shot right on top of a sniper on US spawn mountain. Headshot too.

    PDW sniper all day son.

    So while I'm waiting on my graphics card to get in I actually got the game playable on low last night at a 1024 resolution. It looks like absolute shit but I'm surprised it actually is playable with as graphic intensive as bf3 is.

    How do you get past the starting snipers when they suck so much cock?
    How do you NOT kill people with the MK11 Mod 0?

    I've only played recon by picking it up off of a kit and sat down with this gun and killed like 10 people right in the middle of a fray.
    To be fair though, since I was kind of in the heat of the battle on the ground, I didn't really have to worry about bullet drop.

    Are you good with shotguns? I'm pretty sure you can use the shotgun as a recon and it will earn you points towards the bolt-action sniper.

    Unlock a all class weapon and use it.

    Edited:

    The 870 is amazing and the PP-2000 is also pretty good. At lvl 16 you also unlock the UMP.

    I don't know though, I've found the MK11 to be amazing with ironsights, laserpointer and silencer.

    In the process of me getting 100 kills with the semi-autos, I use them until I get them until I have a foregrip, 8x, and suppressor attached. Do some medium range sniping and I go on a rampage. So far, my favourite one to use is the M39 EMR.

    Although on the other hand, its going to take me a long time to get a service star for the bolt-action rifles because I'm terrible with them.

    Take the scope off and just use it as a battle rifle.

    I still do that with the bolt action sniper. The first one you unlock.
    I do pretty well sometimes, I went on a pretty nice streak before, I killed 5 or 6 people and two of the kills was a two-in-one headshot (don't know what they are called). It was great.

    Oh okay, yeah it's pretty hard to be accurate close range with a weapon that fires 1 shot every second on a controller against a gun that can fire fully automatic. Controllers are great for vehicles though.
    I would just play with a shotgun (or another all-class weapon you enjoy using) and flank the hell out of people until you unlock the SV98 sniper, that's what I did on BFBC2 on the xbox until I unlocked a decent sniper I liked.

    Been using the 870MCS and i'm loving it, i love using Shotguns in this game because the shots don't just disappear after two meters like Call of Duty.

    What Sniper Rifle is most similar to the AWP from Counter Strike?

    Is there some secret to using this gun effectively? I can't kill shit with it because it takes so long to get enough bullets in them.

    I can get a lot of assists though.

    If you mean similar as in a sniper rifle that seems overpowered and everyone will hate you for using, then I think the M98B is BF3's version.

    The gun has a low initial spread and recovers quickly from 2-3 round bursts. Shoot it like the guy in this video:


    It works particularly well over distance and unlike most guns it will actually be really good to use with a 4x scope and heavy barrel, even a bipod.

    I tried hip-firing into a large crowd of people with the M249 from 5 meters away

    Inaccurate as fuck. Didn't kill a single person.

    I got my 500m headshot with the l85a2.

    If you play on karkand with 6x scope, suppressor and bipod maybe you will get the picture of where the gun shines.

    There is a reason for this:

    Taken from /v/ :

    Iranian government is overthrown by insurgents the leader of whom is revealed to be a CIA agent. The US uses this as an excuse to invade the country. When the new government reacts appropriately by acquiring (see: not using, just obtaining) nuclear weapons instead of responding like sane individuals they choose to blame everything on the Russians. Your CO is a glory whore who risks the life of your comrades to make himself look good. Meanwhile CIA agent is planning a terrorist attack in Paris, the Russians being the only ones who bother to try and stop them because Paris is in NATO territory and thus in no way affiliated with the US. In the end the main character has to beat the CIA interrogator over the head with a table leg and escape because the guy would rather start a world war and allow NY to be destroyed than take responsibility for the CIA's actions.

    If you pay attention the US are the real bad guys in the game, everyone who isn't a footline soldier is an asshole. Russians are the only real good guys since they're actually fighting to stop a nuclear war.

    I find that usually the game does a decent job of spawning you out of sight. Whenever you try to spawn on a flag that's being capped you get spawned a significant way out, the game can't predict whether an enemy will will walk around the corner and look your way within the next second. What we do need however is extended spawn protection so that you can't get killed before the world has loaded properly. I'd really love the game not setting your world model as visible until you're actually started to playing.

    I'm not talking about guys coming around corners, that's not nearly as bad. I mean people actively proning where they know enemies will spawn and getting a ton of kills. People barely had time to turn before they were dead.

    B on operation firestorm when they are capping the flag everyone spawn on the same place.

    A tank with cannister shell camped it and got 20+ kills from that.

    They were provided by Kaffarov, a private arms dealer who may or may not be of Russian origin. The Russians were actually going after Kaffarov themselves for selling the nukes to Solomon (that's what the big Spetsnaz force you encounter in "A rock and a hard place" were doing). They were not provided by Russia.

    Good luck facing the l85a2 at 400+ meters with the m16a3.

    You can't compare guns and say which are better when they have different roles.
